“I'm just trying to keep it simple right now on the mound,” Anderson said. “I haven't made any big changes since the spring.”
Anderson didn't make any major adjustments at the plate, either, although a lineup switch did plenty to change Anderson's season.
After hitting in the middle of the order during the Pirates' 2011 fall and 2012 spring championship runs, Anderson moved into the leadoff spot this season.
As a result, Anderson's RBI total was down, but he has scored more runs this year.
“I don't get to hit with runners in scoring position much at all now,” Anderson said. “But I think I'm seeing better pitches there. If they pitch around me, for sure one run's going to score if not more. It makes them come after you.”
The Ole Miss commit is likely to be drafted as a pitcher after the spring season, but Anderson said he's trying not to concern himself with that too much right now.
“I've talked to some scouts a bit, but I'm not going to worry about that right now,” Anderson said. “I'm just trying to finish my senior season and win a couple more titles.”
